Progress in re-assembly can be seen in David Lilley’s photo taken on the 29th August with more painting going on & as of the 15th of August Andy Kelly recorded the final placement of Fenchurch’s boiler in its frames using the overhead gantry crane in the Loco Works, No issues over whether that would fit after the trial run a few weeks back!
Boiler suspended from the overhead cranes ready for final fitment.
Boiler now finally fitted into place.
A few weeks later progress apace!
